Gary Rowett, linked with the vacant Stoke City managerial job, signs a contract extension with Derby County until 2021.

The 43-year-old emerged as the bookies' favourite to succeed Mark Hughes at the bet365 stadium following his impressive work in the East Midlands.

However, the Rams announced on Tuesday that Rowett has put pen to paper on a new three-and-a-half-year deal at Pride Park, just 10 months after he was appointed by the Sky Bet Championship club.

'I'm massively committed to finally getting this team back into the Premier League.

"The first-team squad have also been superb to work with and have really embraced the changes we felt were necessary for success; they are a joy to work with".

U.S. pins hope on China to tackle Pak terror camps
Last year, spokesperson Hua Chunying called rumors of a potential naval base at Gwadar "irresponsible remarks" and "hearsay". China's backing for Pakistan came as the USA stepped up pressure on Islamabad to eliminate terror safe havens on its soil.


Rowett, who has taken charge of 38 matches since his appointment in March of previous year, added: "I am thrilled to extend my contract with this great club through to 2021 and I have thoroughly enjoyed being back at Derby County".

"We have a great relationship which is critical, particularly when so many things needed rapid change".

Derby resume their Championship campaign on Sunday against Birmingham City, the club who sacked Rowett in December 2016 despite being seventh in the table.

It is understood Stoke have sought to make initial contact with O'Neill with a view to holding talks about the possibility of the Republic of Ireland manager making a return to club football, although they are continuing to weigh up the merits of other candidates.
